Mid 19th Century Watercolour - Girl With Book And Quill

Item Sold


A fine piece of romantic watercolour, this portrait of a serene young woman holding an oversized quill and a book, is filled with the romanticism of the working class, prevalent during this era. The girl wears rustic farm attire (in a style popular in the 1600s) and stands against a simple stone wall. The painting may be referencing the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, "The Peasant's Wise Daughter."

This delicate portrait, full of narrative, is unsigned and presented in a extraordinarily well proportioned Victorian frame with return cove and beautiful foliate molding at each corner, in the original gilt finish.

On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. The frame has some tarnishing to the gilt and some cracking to the molding that is stable and typical for a frame of this age.
